Reporting Aquatic Invasive Species

Report Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) that you see or catch in Ohio. Do not return live AIS to the water and do not transport them across state lines. Please reference the Ohio Field Guide to Aquatic Invasive Species to help with AIS identification.

You can submit an AIS report to the Ohio Division of Wildlife online using the form below, or you can print a paper form and return by mail. You can also contact an aquatic invasive species expert listed in the Aquatic Nuisance Species Task Force Database
